The Puppy Bowl is a television show that highlights a variety of dog breeds playfully romping in search of a chew toy to score a touchdown on a miniature football like field. They roam back and forth across the field in an unorganized way while audiences await the random scoring across the field. Pups can be seen waiting in the barking lot area posing as tailgating fans before game play commences.

Each player is introduced before the game starts or resumes as they enter the stadium. These introductions include the player's name, a picture, age, breed, as well as a short, witty "quote" or message about the puppy.

At the game's opening, The Star Spangled Banner plays as noted in professional sports gatherings to display patriotism. Hamster pilots help navigate the field at several different points to give the audience another vantage point as you would see in a professional football game (much more elementary quality when compared to views of a professional game).

The puppies are cheered on by audience members who are noticed in random frames throughout the program. They are also seen making comments or giving praise after a score has been made.

A cool down tub is an interesting detail mentioned which is offered for the world's furriest little athletes. During breaks for the puppies, another vantage point is viewed through the water bowl camera while they take a moment from this unusual play date. Once a puppy has successfully acquired a touchdown, the hedgehog cheerleaders roam the field for viewing pleasure and added emphasis on the achievement.

As in professional sports, the Puppy Bowl also requires a referee to watch the playing field and keep players on track. He also dictates when breaks are to be started and calls fouls as necessary. Fouls can be called and flags can be thrown on the field just as in traditional football for instances such as excessive cuteness during play and excessive puppies piling on the referee.

All in all, this is a family friendly program that is sure to catch your attention. Details have been added comparing professional sports to a playful and animal-friendly sports gathering. People of all ages interested in animals or football may find this show to their liking.
